‘What are you doing, Van Gaal? Are you serious?’ Manchester United fans react to news of David De Gea being dropped again

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal revealed in his pre-match conference ahead of his side’s game against Aston Villa on Friday night that goalkeeper David De Gea will once again be left out of the squad [via Sky Sports] and that has been a hot topic on social media.

The Spaniard was dropped in favour of summer signing Sergio Romero for the Red Devils’ first game of the new season against Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford last weekend and that prompted speculation that a transfer to Liga BBVA giants Real Madrid was at an advanced stage.

However, this saga is showing no signs of being resolved anytime soon as Los Blancos appear reluctant to meet the reported £35million valuation that United have placed on De Gea’s head.

With van Gaal once again dropping the 24-year-old from the squad, it could mean that there is still hope that a resolution between the two European giants is close, but it appears that a number of United supporters on Twitter are becoming rather frustrated with the whole situation.
